Ramesh Sippy, 1975, 162 min.

Sholay is Bollywood's landmark contribution to the Western genre. It remains the highest-grossing film in the history of Hindi cinema and was declared "film of the millennium" by BBC India in 1999. The film tells the story of a former cop who hires two ex-cons to eradicate a gang of bandits. Sholay stands out for its astonishing landscape cinematography and absence of the family themes characteristic of many Hindi films; it might be most recognized, however, for the degree of pure evil embodied by the bandit chief Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan).

$5 general, students, and seniors. Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
